PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Jimmy Rollins homered twice and A.J. Burnett pitched 7 2-3 strong innings to lead the Philadelphia Phillies to their fifth straight victory, 6-2 over the Washington Nationals on Friday night.

Domonic Brown doubled and drove in two runs for Philadelphia, which matched its longest winning streak of the season. It has been a surprising run for the Phillies, who had lost 13 of 16 before a four-game sweep of the NL Central-leading Brewers in Milwaukee.

Burnett (6-8) allowed two runs and five hits while striking out six and walking four.

Bryce Harper homered for the Nationals, who have lost three of four. Washington right-hander Jordan Zimmerman (6-5) abruptly left his start in the fourth inning with an apparent injury.
